the question has the defense and intelligence community accurately forecasted their 10-year, 15-year need for spectrum, and are we making decisions about reallocating that to the private sector in the context of the potential real need that these communities might have for it as, you know, they become more connected, they pick up mobile, you know, drone connectivity, network-centric warfare? have they predicted their needs before we make decision about reallocating that? >> well, so just some facts. in the u.s. the government -- military and otherwise -- has primary access to about 60% of the spectrum, and commercial industries have access to about 40%. when you think about the numbers and compare the number of devices used by government versus commercial, it's not even close. >> yeah. >> and so it's hard not to rook at it and think -- not to look at it and think this is out of whack even taking the most aggressive projections on what government users will need. and, in fact, there really isn't a lot of disagreement that on the government side -- this is true on the commercial side, too,

tenure as director of the c.i.a. and secretary of defense, i have truly been privileged to meet and work with thousands of professionals who have made this fight their fight, who have put their lives on the line for their country and who have built the most effective global counterterrorism network the world has ever seen. their work, i believe, has made the american people safer. the united states more secure. and has put al qaeda on the defensive. let me describe some of the progress that has been achieved in this fight against al qaeda. first of all, with respect to core al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, and that's where the leadership of al qaeda after 9/11 found refuge. our military forces, our intelligence professionals, our diplomats, our development experts have taken the fight to al qaeda's leadership. first through dramatically expanded counterterrorism operations on the afghanistan-pakistan border. and second, through a renewed, revitalized and properly resourced effort to help build an afghanistan that can secure and govern itself. and that's the fundamental mission in af

by the department of defense, it's now a not for profit called helmets to hard hats. and what it basically does, it identifies 60,000 american businesses and some of the trade unions. they collaborate to get together, to identify veterans who have already had extraordinary training and discipline and leadership and teamwork and it accelerates the apprenticeship program. so these individuals could be making $60,000, $70,000 a year if there was work to be had here. so it's an investment in america, it's an investment in american businesses, and it says to our returning veterans in a real sincere and genuine way, thank you for your service. mr. garamendi: you said earlier that the american society of engineers, i think that was the name, said that we have a d rating for infrastructure and that we need over $2 trillion. i don't know anybody in my district where we may have a serious flood in the next three days that says the infrastructure is adequate. they're look at those levinees and they're watching the water rise and they're saying, this isn't sufficient to protect us. so in a very real sense

have a devastating affect on national security. it would dramatically undercut our defense. some of the programs are the great investment programs of the future. energy, etc.. i really hope congress will redeem our homes by dealing with the entitlement reform. the center of local, and i in june introduced a proposal that would take steps to save medicare for the almost 70 million people who will be on medicare in one decade. and reduce the enormous costs of places on our task there. people think the payroll reductions and the premiums they pay pay the total benefits of medicare. it is not so. the average in our lifetime takes $3 out of the system for every dollar they put in. you just cannot run a program long term like that. who picks up the rest? the taxpayers. it is a big part of why we are getting into a deficit. you cannot save medicare by leaving it as it is. you can only save medicare, and i want to, i believe in the program. the senator and i put in a plan that would save over $600 billion in medicare costs over the next dent it -- over the next decade, and reduce medicar

want to put that out there, put them on the defensive. and by the way, if they reject a fair deal, it makes it easier for us to deal with our own politics because we've showed that the problem is more than tehran. >> david ignatius, the same question i asked richard haass. do you think the iranians will take a threat from the united states more seriously than saddam hussein, or noriega or other dictators took in years past? >> the iranians have believed for years, certainly ever since i visited tehran in 2006, that the u.s. is not prepared to go to war to stop iran's nuclear program no matter what we may say or threaten. they just don't think -- they think it would be crazy for us to do it and that we're not crazy. i think an additional problem for president obama in making his policy by any means necessary credible is that this presidential campaign showed clearly to me the absolute defining moment was the third debate on foreign policy. it showed that the american people do not want to go to war again. the two candidates, romney and obama, were identical in expressing quite rest

at the oral argument where defense counsel made very clear that ether has many lawful uses. that makes it different from what the court considered in place. >> not in somebody's house. i mean, maybe lawful uses in a factory or an operating room, but nobody has cans of ether in their house unless they're making drugs. >> the defense counsel i think correctly suggested that there are, in fact, lawful uses in photography labs. he actually had an expert who testified about the various lawful uses of ether this a house. the government was not making an argument that that was contraband or evidence of a crime. the government was just saying, oh, it's very limited information because we had already tracked the ether to the house. and the court said, basically what it said in powell, it might not be much, but it's still about lawful information/activity in the house, and that's protected. sure, we say kyllo o, lawful activity in the house, but those are not legitimate interests, and the court has said that again and again and again. >> but in kyllo there was already a seizure that had happened
